Anticancer drug resistance is a common intractable obstacle in clinical cancer chemotherapy. Here, we hypothesize that antiangiogenic cancer therapy through the targeted delivery of antiangiogenic agents to the tumor endothelial cells (EC), not the resistant cancer cells, may have the potential of combating multidrug resistant cancer. The K237(More)
Antiangiogenic therapy is a validated approach for colorectal cancer (CRC) treatment. However, diverse adverse effects inevitably appear due to the off-target effect of the approved antiangiogenic inhibitors on the physiological functions and homeostasis. This study was to investigate a new tumor vessel targeting nanoparticulate drug delivery system, F56(More)
Actinidia chinensis Planch. is a famous Chinese herbal medicine to treat many diseases such as cancers. Triterpenes, polyphenols and anthraquinones are normally considered as the main constituents for its effects. In this study, eleven known triterpenes were isolated from the root of Actinidia chinensis., and were examined for its antiangiogenic activities.(More)
Antiangiogenic cancer therapy based on nanoparticulate drug delivery systems (nano-DDS) is emerging as a promising new approach besides the proved molecular-targeted antiangiogenic agents. The current nano-DDS are restricted to the targeting to tumor vascular endothelial cells, but seldom efforts have been made to target the tumor vascular pericytes which(More)
Tumor angiogenesis is a multistep process involved with multiple molecular events in cancer microenvironment. Several molecular-targeted agents aiming to suppress tumor angiogenesis have been successfully translated into cancer clinic. However, new strategies are still urgently desired to be excavated to overcome the poor response and resistance in some(More)
Metronomic chemotherapy aiming at inhibiting tumor angiogenesis with conventional chemotherapeutics is a promising strategy for antiangiogenic cancer therapy. However, current metronomic chemotherapy mainly focuses on free small-molecule drugs, without any effort to achieve tumor-specific biodistribution, which may lead to long-term toxicity concerns.(More)
Raddeanin A (RA) is an active triterpenoid saponin from a traditional Chinese medicinal herb, Anemone raddeana Regel. It was previously reported that RA possessed attractive antitumor activity through inhibiting proliferation and inducing apoptosis of multiple cancer cells. However, whether RA can inhibit angiogenesis, an essential step in cancer(More)
Because glycine plays a prominent role in living creatures, an accurate and precise quantitative analysis method for the compound is needed. Herein, a new approach to analyze glycine by hydrophilic interaction chromatography (HILIC) coupled with electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (ESI-MS/MS) was developed. This method avoids the use of(More)
Platycodin D (PD) is an active component mainly isolated from the root of Platycodon grandiflorum. Recent studies proved that PD exhibited inhibitory effect on proliferation, migration, invasion and xenograft growth of diverse cancer cell lines. However, whether PD is suppressive for angiogenesis, an important hallmark in cancer development, remains(More)
CONCLUSION Surgical resection of laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) could be associated with improved circulating myeloid dendritic cell (mDC) number and monocyte-derived dentritic cell (MoDC) function. Although adjunctive radiotherapy after surgery did not effect the normalization of mDC number, it may have an impact on MoDC function. OBJECTIVE To(More)
